    jp's Mystery P.I.: Portrait of a Thief (DS)

    [September 24, 2020 05:17:17 PM]
    Finished this yesterday. I was starting to get a bit bored by the end - but this was mostly because the areas in which to find the hidden objects were starting to get quite repetitive. Interestingly, the difficulty curve really drops off as well, since the environments are the same you start to learn where different things are hidden, so it becomes much easier. A lot.

    Fun, short, interesting, and surprisingly "full featured", you collect medals, you can play the mini-games separately, and you can do the "full" hidden object for each of the areas.

    I was expecting something completely different from what was described on the back of the box. A game of solving mysteries, with some puzzles, I imagined having to deduce solutions, examine clues, and more.

    The game is a hidden object game - probably ported from a PC version (flash maybe?) that was played on the web. I'm only guessing that because while the publisher is Popcap, there are two developers listed - I assume one is the original dev and the other is the DS version/port.

    That being said, I've really enjoyed playing it so far - there's mostly hidden object areas and once you're ready to finish "the chapter", you solve a puzzle, and move on to the next chapter wherein more story is divulged and you know what's going on.

    What you do in the game has nothing to do with how the story is doled out...but, I'm enjoying the relaxing qualities of the gameplay. No pressure, just slowly poring over a picture trying to find two buttons, a bird, a lighter, and who knows what else. It's been fun!
